Yes, you guessed it. Another article about getting ready for the holiday season. After all it’s that time of year, both for the holidays and for articles about the holidays.I am hearing a lot of talk about the upcoming holidays, and I suspect you are too.

First, the usual hope-I-don’ts that seem to go hand-in-hand with the holidays:“I hope I don’t eat too much.”“I hope I don’t overspend.”“I hope I don’t wear myself out.”Some of my clients have added some additional holiday concerns to the conversation:“I hope I’m not lonely.”“I hope I keep my cool.”“I hope I stay sober.”So lots of hopes for the holiday season.
